I’m in the best position to develop my passion for Architectural Heritage. My role combines historical research with practical advice for architects, planners and builders. NUA changed and shaped the person I am now. The tutors and the particular character of the University are very special and unique.

Norwich is a great place to study Architecture due to its wealth of fine buildings exhibiting a range of historical and architectural styles from which to draw inspiration. I’ve worked as a Project Architect on increasingly more complex new build and refurbishment projects and I have been the lead designer on a number of specialist projects.
